I buy something that I know will be terrible just to review it). Not only do I feel like I wasted some money but I know that releasing bad product typically hurts a companies reputation, especially a smaller company like Super7 who is still establishing themselves. I've really enjoyed the Super7 stuff I've purchased over the past few years, particularly their various M.U.S.C.L.E. sets and the amazingly bizarre The Worst. Sadly, these Mega Man figured just didn't turn out well and are cursed with flimsy plastic, soft details, and an odd, shiny finish. My hope is that Super7 figures out what happened here ASAP, acknowledges it, and finds a way to rectify it. I'd love to own these figures in the same quality of plastic as the Street Fighter II or Alien minifigures and hopefully Super7 will find a way to offer these that doesn't reek of "double dipping." For now, though, I'll finish up this set of figures with a look at Pack D, containing Dr. Light, Elec Man, and Bomb Man.
Height: 1 3/4 inches
Includes: 3 figures
Non-Scalper Price: $6 dollars
* Looking at a minifigure like Bomb Man, you just don't know how bad I want these guys to be amazing! He just looks like he should be an incredible minifigure, but that underdetailed shiny plastic just kills things!
* Here's another minifigure that should really stand out. Like the announcer from M.U.S.C.L.E., the kindly Dr. Light has a build that's completely different from most other minifigures and thus should have been a hit. Due to the poor sculpting and shininess, though, it's near impossible to even tell what is going on with this guy's face.
* In the absence of the crisp details we've seen on other minifigures, Elec Man just looks really generic. The only thing I can tell is that he apparently wants someone to smell his finger. Not going to happen, bro.
